Default Need help, making decision on 2 guns

I have both an MR1 as well as a Pilot ACS that I picked up real cheap. If I were to keep one of these and sell the other, which would be the better gun. I will be playing woods type stuff, if that's even a factor. I just want to keep the better of the 2 models. I also know the MR1 is easily modified, not too sure about the Pilot. I know I will want a longer barrel on either unit, neither seem to have a range beyond 50'. The pilot has lousy grips and the electronics are exposed to a small degree. The MR1 has as I understand a tendancy to chop, but it's easily servicable. I could keep both I suppose, but I could also sell one and take the proceeds to build up the other. With that in mind, which is the better option?

pilot>MR1 only because i agree with you when you said that the mr1 chops alot. the pilot very rarely will chop unless your hopper feeds too slow for your fingers. but if you dont like you're stock grips, just pick up some dye stickies and solve your problem. but the pilot is more upgradable IMO because you have the option of making it LP

Low Pressure. It is a series of mods that allow you to run your gun at a consistent low pressure (100-500 psi) making it quieter, more consistent and allowing more shots per fill. Personally, I would get the MR1 because it's made specifically for woodsball, very durable and it's only chopped a few times in the 2 years I've had it.

does the MR1 have an ACS bolt? no. but you're entitled to your opinion but honestly when you're playing in the woods you want to make people duck for cover, with the pilot you can fire as fast as your fingers can walk the trigger, but with the mr1 you're limited when it comes to speed

You can get an ACS bolt for an MR1 and can easily use the pilot's Eframe on the MR1. I'd rock the MR1 with the stock and badass barrel.

Of course that's depending where he wants to go with the MR1. have you seen teds?
